Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

From winter whale watching to autumn seabirding, The Northwest Nature Guide offers more than 170 best bets for wildlife adventures throughout Oregon, Washington, and British Columbia—as well as your own backyard. With contagious enthusiasm and irrepressible humor, James Luther Davis shares his insider tips, helpful maps, and experience to guarantee readers know where they need to go to see nature at its peak every month of the year. Whatever the season and no matter the weather, Davis entices nature lovers of all ages to discover what they might otherwise miss. The intrepid may find the three-toed woodpecker or even Sasquatch. The inquisitive will learn why auks fly but penguins don't. Everyone will discover outdoor adventures that revitalize, inspire, and renew their appreciation for nature. Whether it's tidepooling by the shore, newt pursuit in the woods, or trailing bighorn sheep in the mountains, this practical guide helps make the most of every fresh-air opportunity.

About the Author

James Luther Davis is a naturalist for Metro Regional Parks and Greenspaces and formerly served as education director for the Audubon Society of Portland. He grew up chasing lizards in the Sonoran Desert, gong on to earn a master's degree in zoology from Colorado State University. He taught at Marylhurst University where he helped start the Head Start Summer Science Institute. During this time he wrote this book's predecessor, Seasonal Guide to the Natural Year: Oregon, Washington, and British Columbia (1996). He also contributed to Wild in the City: A Guide to Portland's Natural Areas. Davis and his wife, Sally, live in Portland. When not pursuing his natural history interests, he plays guitar in rock and roll bands, although not nearly enough these days.
